I have ENS. (Empty Nest Syndrome)
But I'm feeling a little sad....
I'm sure going to miss hearing their little contented peeping sounds in my living room, but I won't be missing the faint smell of poop coming from their box. Belle, Beau, and Cecil are loving their brand new world, and I still keep them indoors at night for now, so everything is working out OK. They haven't gotten all of their silky feathers yet, so they are in an awkward stage right now.
Hubby and I had another busy weekend... Hubby is converting one of our old chicken coops into a little storage/potting shed next to the house just for me. (Yay!) I will post pictures soon... right now it looks like an outhouse, so you'll have to wait a while to see it.
I found a delicious (and easy) recipe for Tuna Cakes in a new "Taste of Home" cookbook my wonderful Father-in-law gave me.
1-6 oz. package of chicken stuffing
1/3 cup of mayonnaise
3/4 cup of water (I drained the tuna water into a measuring cup, then added water to it for more flavoring. It was good!)
2 tbsp sweet pickle relish (this is optional- I'm not a big sweet relish fan, so I left it out.)
Mix all ingedients in a large bowl, then cover and refrigerate for 10-15 minutes. Pat out desired sized patties (or use an ice cream scoop) and cook in non-stick skillet or griddle until golden brown on both sides.
Oh, and don't forget the sweet tea!
